Premier Grand Cru Classe A

2013 Chateau Angelus, Saint-Emilion Grand Cru, France

2013 – « L’APPÉTANT »

After a rainy spring, which triggered poor fruit set and “hens and chicks” (millerandage), July and August were especially hot and dry months, which provided the right conditions for the grapes to develop the basic requirements: the polyphenol quality in the skins and pip ripeness. This new vintage has distinctive freshness, elegance, fruit and refined tannins.

Harvest: September 28th to October 18th
Blend: 62 % Merlot et 38 % Cabernet Franc
Drink: 2030 - 2035

Robert Parker Wine Advocate

On the other hand, the opaque purple-colored 2013 Angelus, a brilliant blend of equal parts Merlot and Cabernet Franc harvested between September 9 and October 3 (only 60% of the production was utilized), possesses good acidity as well as pure blueberry, mulberry and black currant fruit intermixed with notions of licorice, Christmas fruitcake, underbrush and forest floor. With medium body and more texture than is found in most 2013s, it should drink well for 8-10 years. This vineyard is meticulously manicured and the wine is brilliantly made by Hubert de Bouard. Reviewed by Robert M. Parker, Jr, Issue date: August 2014. Drinking window: 2014 - 2024.

Vinous

(62% merlot and 38% cabernet franc): Opaque dark ruby. Complex aromas of blueberry, mocha, underbrush and aromatic herbs. Sweet, fleshy, clean flavors of dark berries and chocolate-covered plums are complicated by oaky and peppery nuances at the back. This is a successful Angelus for the year--one that is less extracted than some recent monsters and benefited in overall balance because of it. Reviewed by lan D'Agata, Issue date: May 2014. Drinking window: N/A.
